TMBA459: The State of Bitcoin

TMBA459: The State of Bitcoin post image

Dan and Ian have spoken about cryptocurrencies before, and they have certainly been a divisive topic among the listeners of this show.

The fact is that cryptocurrencies aren't going away. If you're interested in your financial future and really want to understand the nature of these markets and how to manipulate them, this episode is for you.

We've invited our friend Taylor Pearson back to the show this week to talk about a recent article he wrote called The State of Bitcoin.

On today's podcast, Taylor shares his thoughts on how cryptocurrencies essentially differ from other forms of investment, how to distinguish hype from opportunity, and why the "Bitcoin backlash" is happening.

Dan and Ian have been around the block a few times, and in that time they have seen many entrepreneurs come and go.

What many don't understand is that the majority of entrepreneurial success stories don't happen overnight.

Nearly every sustainable path to wealth and freedom is a journey that can take years, and often decades to achieve

This week's episode is a list of the five common reasons that entrepreneurs will give up on their journey.

If you identify with any of the reasons we mention on today's podcast, fear not. You can use the knowledge and information we share on this show to help you get over your obstacles and further sustain your journey as an entrepreneur.

TMBA457: Why Does Everyone Talk About Revenue and Not Profit?

TMBA457: Why Does Everyone Talk About Revenue and Not Profit? post image

A few weeks ago, Dan and Ian published an episode of this podcast about The Peter Principle, which is the idea that everyone will more or less rise to the level of their own incompetence.

Today, we are talking about a different principle. This one comes from a great 19th century book, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain.

This episode begins with an excerpt from the book, where Tom is forced to paint a fence and convinces others to help him, eventually tricking them into painting the fence themselves.

On today's show, we're sharing our thoughts on how entrepreneurs can use this same philosophy to lead a great team without working in their business day-to-day.

We'll also be talking about the progress we've made with our new business venture - Dynamite Jobs, and why many entrepreneurs spend so much time focusing on top-line revenue rather than profits.
